In a recent interview with The Week, Deepika Padukone addressed rumors surrounding her cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbuster film, “Jawan.” Reports had suggested that she charged a staggering 15-30 crores for her appearance, but Deepika clarified that she did not take any payment for her role in the film.
Deepika explained that her decision was driven by a deep-seated desire to pay homage to the resilience of women who silently support their husbands’ careers. She drew inspiration from her own mother’s journey and considered her appearance in “83” as a tribute to such women. However, when it comes to special appearances alongside Shah Rukh Khan or Rohit Shetty, she expressed her willingness to be a part of their projects without any financial considerations.
Speaking about her relationship with superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika described them as each other’s lucky charms, going beyond mere luck to a profound sense of mutual trust and respect. She emphasized that her connection with Shah Rukh is marked by vulnerability and deep bonds, where luck is just the icing on the cake.
